OADN Applauds State Of The World’s Nursing 2020: Investing In Education, Jobs And Leadership Report

Newswise — April 8, 2020 - OADN welcomes The World Health Organization's State of the World’s Nursing 2020: Investing in Education, Jobs and Leadership Report. This report, which coincides with the 2020 International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, takes on new meaning during the unprecedented global coronavirus pandemic.  The report's recommendations to “to invest in a massive acceleration of nursing education, create at least 6 million new nursing jobs by 2030 and strengthen nurse leadership” are amplified in the current crisis.  At a time when the public is reminded about the critical role of nurses as frontline care providers, this report underscores the extreme importance that all nurses work to their level of preparation and education to better ensure population health outcomes.

OADN was pleased to be involved in a planning meeting in 2019 that brought together United States Nursing Leaders to discuss State of the World’s Nursing (SoWN) report.  The focus of the meeting was to discuss the data collection needed to drive policy decisions and investment in nursing for the report.  This report is focused on the entire global society and thus it is interesting that many of the challenges United States nursing programs confront are also seen worldwide.  The report specifically states there should be an “investment in nursing faculty, availability of clinical placement sites and accessibility of programs to attract a diverse student body.”

National, state, and local leaders, both nurses, and non-nurses, can prevent or mitigate future global health crisis by implementing the report's recommendations.

Researchers Develop Experimental Rapid COVID-19 Test Using Innovative Nanoparticle Technique
University of Maryland Medical Center

Scientists from the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) developed an experimental diagnostic test for COVID-19 that can visually detect the presence of the virus in 10 minutes. It uses a simple assay containing plasmonic gold nanoparticles to detect a color change when the virus is present. The test does not require the use of any advanced laboratory techniques, such as those commonly used to amplify DNA, for analysis. The authors published their work last week in the American Chemical Society’s nanotechnology journal ACS Nano.
